    Re: People say they're moving to Canada because of Obamacare

    I always get a kick out of those people that say they are going to Canada because of Obamacare.

    A friend of mine is currently studying abroad in London. Her status on Facebook yesterday was, "Obamacare was upheld?!?! I'm never leaving London."
    Many people tried to explain to her that the UK has a program of socialized medicine in place. She didn't understand, no matter how many different ways it was explained.

    Some people really worry me.

    That's very interesting. I didn't realize that. I thought Canadians had to buy private health insurance to cover them during whatever time they'll be in the USA.

    Yep, America is the ONLY first world country without a national healthcare system. Even with the ACA being upheld, the US remains the only first world country without a national healthcare system.

    Should you find the ACA so overbearing that you need to leave the US, I might recommend the cozy coastal country of Somalia. Much to the liking of the Cons, Somalians do not have to worry about an overly intrusive central government. What limited federal government spending they do have is largely spent on the military (the common defense) so do not have much left over to waste on healthcare. Somalia is the libertarians/Conservatives dream: no unnecessary laws, no gun control and no government intrusion; only the strong and smart prosper.

    ObamaCare is NOT universal healthcare.

    Canada does not require its citizens to buy insurance policies from private for-profit corporations.
    That's because everybody claims to be happy with their current insurer (mostly because they haven't had any major claims) and the politicians are happy with their healthcare lobby money.
    Hillary wanted single payer too but look how far she got. Be happy there is at least a cap on insurers gouging now. Forcing them to use 85% of their premiums on healthcare is a start at breaking their grip on our nuts. And those weasels can get rid of their claims denial dept. too No more dropping customers when they get sick.

    It is not that surprising, its been over 2 years since it passed and with all the money that has been spent to demonize this plan that is just starting to benefit people. The prolonged delay in implementing the bill was a poison pill added as an "appeasement" to Republicans who pretended at one time to be "interested" in working with the Dems. They have used the delay to try and tear down the bill with at least $250 million spent so far. But never fear now that it has become settled law and more and more of the benefits become clear, peoples minds will change. In 5 years we will not know how we lived without it.

    People Who Say They're Moving To Canada Because Of ObamaCare
    I remember during the Obama/McCain election, a lot of right wingers were saying how scary Obama was and if he won, they'd move to Canada or else where. The only other places anybody in America is willing to move is going to be Canada and Europe, so what's the point?

    I agree. I'd like to see some of these people actually go through with it. Whenever somebody says it, I just blow it off because so many people say it without meaning it... If I really thought America was going to get really bad, I would get the hell out without caring about making a dramatic exist.
